Why VPNs Matter

Hey folks – today I’m going to talk to you about something a little bit boring. See, while it’s not that sexy, network security is an important aspect of everyday life, and I highly encourage people out there to look into services like the one I’m going to review today – trust me, it’s worth doing. Owned and operated by PornHub, this service is essentially a way to tunnel all of your traffic through an encrypted connection so that no one on your network can snoop at whatever it is that you’re looking at. Whether it’s at work where your requests may be monitored by a boss or a home network that you share with your family, VPNs are a terrific way to keep yourself and your dealings private.

VPN Hub Features

I’ve done some various testing on PornHub’s VPN and honestly, it’s a lot better than I was expecting. Firstly, I ran the software through some leak testing kits like WebRTC and found no problem whatsoever: it appears that VPN Hub does exactly what it says on the tin. It also allows you to utilize either AES-128 or AES-256 bit encryption – pretty much what every other VPN offers. It’s also compatible with Mac and Windows, with apps available for Apple and Android devices. Not too shabby, and the overall design of the software is neat and tidy – it doesn’t feel like a hack job.

Server Choice

The biggest selling point for me is that VPN Hub offers users access to more than 800 servers including ones located in Belgium, Brazil, Germany, France, and Singapore. You want a good global reach with your VPN provider, as it allows you to pick a jurisdiction that doesn’t give up data so easily. The software also shows you each server’s load, so if one is getting hammered by lots of users, you can pick an option that’s a little less saturated. That said, almost all servers are below 30% load, so it’s likely not going to make that much of a difference.

Downsides

I should probably mention a few downsides – VPN Hub has relatively poor speeds (between 6-10 Mb/s) which means it’s less than ideal for watching 4K videos, but everything else should be fine (yes, including PornHub 1080p movies). It’s also not cheap: something you can usually forgive if they’ve provided a much higher speed and more robust features, but on the whole it’s about average for what I’d expect at this price point.

Conclusion

VPN Hub is a good VPN, but it’s not exactly revolutionizing the privacy industry. It provides a good service and at an acceptable price – that’s pretty much all that needs to be said here.
